Hello skin lovers I am reflecting on 2017 today, it’s not quite the end of 2017 just yet but 2018 is so close I can almost taste it! And I am more than ready to shut the door on 2017 and never look back.
Why you ask, do I want to leave 2017 behind just quite so badly? Well let me get a little personal with you all. 2017 has been possibly one of the toughest years of my life. My career has been … challenging to say the least. I have lost my job twice due to redundancy’s and to top it off I have worked for probably the worst clinic/manager I have ever come across in all my life, not naming any names but if you’re an aesthetic or beauty therapist stay the hell away from a skin and beauty clinic in Sevenoaks!
Then just the usual tough aspects every person goes through throughout the year; dating, friendships, family, the tax man being a twat, blah blah blah. Nothing quite out of the ordinary with that but still adds to the overall stress that was 2017!
In the strangest possibly way I think I needed all that … not so fortunate stuff to happen to force my hand, because my self-confidence has grown so much this last year and I am so happy with every aspect of my life, no matter the difficulties I may have faced to get to this point. And, for all of the challenging aspects of this last year the good completely outweighs it, because I have done the most amazing things this year and spent it with the most amazing people.
So for now it is time to shut the door on 2017. I am now looking to the future and what 2018 has to bring because I have every faith this going to be the best year of my life. Oh and I may have some very exciting news on the way. But you’ll all have to just wait and see about that!
Thank you for the support these last few months skin lovers.
Much skin loving love
Your skincare queen.
